  1. The "N" word

    I see Kendrick Lamar invited a white woman on stage to perform and now there's a huge debate about white people using the "n" word. I'm a huge Hip Hop fan but when singing lyrics I say "homie" instead. What are peoples thoughts on this?

  2. What's happened to Leith?

    Having not managed to get a ticket for the bus shelter on Wednesday I decided to watch the game in Leith surrounded by fellow hibees. I haven't been down (outside of match days) for a year or so. Coming down the walk I stopped in at bar after bar to find no screens and loads of super quiet...

  3. The Israelis

    Thought the Iraeli butchers deserved a mention gunning down Palestinian protesters at the Gaza border, 60 dead and thousands injured.

  4. The future of the Labour Party

    I decided not to post this in the Leadership thread as that contest is all but over. Corbyn will be declared winner by a huge margin. So what does the future hold for Labour?

  5. Tide turning against the US National Rifles Association

    Good to see that pressure is building up against the NRA. It's good to see some companies starting to take a stance against this organisation. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-43268446 When I hear anything from the NRA, I'm lost for words. How gullible are the American public to...

    Itís been pretty low key as far as the news is concerned, but this eruption could go on for years. The threat to life is low, but the fact that these are volcanic islands means that without the volcano they wouldnít exist. The latest eruption is just a continuation of what has formed the islands in...

    Anyone a member? Is it worth the money. I'm in London but in Edinburgh quite a bit on business these days. So I'd use the venues down south much more but not exclusively. Interesting selection of single cask on their shop but doesn't say which distilleries.

    Just finished watching this 6 part series. Truly shocking events. One of the best dramatisations I've seen so if you can get a hold of it do so. Hard to believe a government would treat its citizens like this even if one of them was a bit loopy.
